LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Brit New Wave icons Spandau Ballet have announced that they are preparing their first album of new material in 25 years, with an international tour to follow.
The group, comprised of Tony Hadley, Gary Kemp and his brother Martin Kemp, Steve Norman and John Keeble did release an album, "Once More" in 2009, but it consisted mostly of rerecorded material from their back catalogue along with only two new offerings. Their last full length release of new content was way back in the dark days of 1989 when they dropped "Heart Like a Sky" shortly before disbanding.
As of yet, no announcement has been made about a release date of the new album, or any specifics on the follow-on tour, but in an interview with UK newspaper The Sun, bandmember Gary Kemp said, "Everything is back on track. We want to go back on tour. We didn't patch things up for money but because we had a deep history with each other."
The group is also working on a new documentary, Soul Boys of the Western World, which is set for release in October. – Staff Writers
